One definite fault of Yair Lapid's

A yeshiva director wrote a letter to the Jerusalem Post where he laments something I have to agree is a grave mistake Yair Lapid is making:
I have been in agreement with most of the programs that Finance Minister Yair Lapid has placed on the agenda for the new government, and I applaud his courage and bold initiatives.

However, your headline stating that Lapid is working to pass legislation that would recognize same-sex marriages in the State of Israel disturbed me very much (“Lapid working to pass civil, gay marriage in Israel,” May 19).

I never dreamed that a Jewish State would legitimize something that our Holy Torah calls “an abomination” (Leviticus 18:22). The harshness with which the Torah describes homosexuality testifies to the repugnance in which God holds those that engage in such practices.

None of the other prohibited relationships are described with this term of disgust. Homosexuality, however, is unnatural and therefore abominable.

It behooves us, as Jews in a Jewish State, to vehemently reject such an affront to our Holy Torah.
I would just note that while it's not like I've researched everything in the Torah/Bible as well as I should, I sincerely hope it does describe child molestation in equally abominable terms, and indeed it should.

There are a lot of things Lapid says or does that I can agree with, including his point that parents are the first and foremost people responsible for their children when they bear them. But if he thinks it's perfectly fine to legitimize homosexuality, that's something I can't concur with, because, simply put, it's an act of mental abnormality, plain and simple. That's not just solely a religious or even a secular belief. That's just a recognition of what either does or doesn't make sense.

So this is one thing that should be protested by everyone concerned, mainly parents. And I do know that whatever comes in legal proceedings, rabbis who oppose the culture shouldn't be forced to perform gay marriages if they don't want to.
